Time and Mistakes
I really enjoy this game a lot. I have found myself ignoring every other game I play until I finish my doctorate. However, I've noticed how the time has gone back from 30 to 20 sec in the minefield and challenges. I'm a fast reader, but if looking for an excess of mistakes more time is needed. Also, I have noticed that capitalization mistakes are made. In Big Bang, I think, Universe is capitalized in the first three paragraphs and then last three it's not. There are other capitalization errors within I just can't recall. And how in the world do you capitalize numbers? Just curious. Take a while to proofread and see what you find that none of your other players such as myself hasn't found.
Final complaint, decide on English or Brit spelling. The word was scepticism. In English it starts with a K. I kept pressing it as misspelled. It is the Brit spelling.
That would help out a lot too.
Other than that. I love this game. And I will continue to play it addictively despite it's annoying misgivings. But I trust that you will take the time to address these issues.
I paid the $.99 and disappointed with the quality. I feel I wasted my $.99. I hope they will make it function better.
First of all, it goes from round to round without a way of going back to the menu. “Practice” does not seem to work. It would be nice if the Practice was not timed to allow familiarization with the game and how it is played and what the different markings mean, like a tutorial.
Time limits should be more adjustable.
A running total number of errors found should be displayed as well as the time remaining.
It needs a HELP page to explain more about the game. Like what happens with the “money.” The player earns it, but there is a total that goes lower? Don’t understand.
After a round is over, the score and changes should remain viewable so that you can actually from learn what you missed.
I’ve only played for about 10 minutes and these are the problems I encountered in that amount of time.
This game is quite addictive. More importantly, it provides an advantage over many other edutainment apps: it's not designed for kids, and goes up to post-doc level. A kid could easily play the lower stages, too, so it offers a challenge for an impressively wide range of abilities and ages.
My one criticism is gameplay can become repetitive. Storifying the content more intensively would help.
